A 4-year-old girl was shot in the back and two men were wounded Wednesday morning when a gunman fired a barrage of bullets in the Bronx, police said.
Cops were notified about the incident that took place in front of a building at 167th Street and Clay Avenue in the East Concourse neighborhood around 11:45 a.m. The exact time of the shooting is under investigation.
The shooting may have been part of a dispute between two men that escalated, according to a source, as one of the men went to his car and brandished a gun.
The suspect fired 19 shots in total — several of which hit the unidentified girl, a 33-year-old man and 47-year-old man — before fleeing in the car with another suspect, the source said.
The girl and the 33-year-old were privately transported to Lincoln Hospital, and the 47-year-old victim was privately transported to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, a police spokesman said.
All were being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
No arrests were made and the investigation was ongoing as of Wednesday afternoon.
